Yes why it cannot be "Author is generalizing a typical case"??
targetgmatchotu & btg9788,
In this problem, the president does not generalize any specific/atypical case, rather he is using an accepted aphorism only to prove his claim (narrow in scope)
When you generalize, you extrapolate a certain claim/fact to things wider in scope.
Sweater keeps you warm in cold.Narrow in scope:
Its cold in here today, I should wear the sweater.Generalized:
Its cold in here today, everyone must be wearing the sweater.
Similarly in this problem:Accepted aphorism:
Truth passes through three stages: mocked; condemned; and then accepted.Narrow in scope:
claims were mocked first, hence they are deemed to be accepted as truth.Generalized:
whose claims were mocked will soon find their claim accepted as truth.
